Naples

— 4 nights
Naples is the capital of the Italian region Campania and the third-largest municipality in Italy after Rome and Milan. Venture out of the city with trips to Salerno (Lavorazione Artigianale Savastano, Chiesa Di Santa Maria de Lama, &more) and Bosco de Medici Winery (in Pompeii). There's lots more to do: delve into the distant past at Pompeii Archaeological Park, don't miss a visit to Oltre I Resti, steep yourself in history at Parco Acheologico di Ercolano, and see the interesting displays at Museo Archeologico Nazionale di Napoli.
